My Reading Challenge
I am setting myself a challenge of 12 books. 12 books in 12 months does sound rhyming. I am sure I will be reading everyday. Now the whole idea of finishing a book is the real challenge for me. Starting a new book is the most exciting thing but to read through and complete it is what requires CONSISTENCY. So lets see what I can do to be consistent and complete this goal.
My Choice of books for the Reading Challenge
Personal growth books are my all-time favourites. So 5 – 6 books on Happiness, positive thinking, mindset, mental health and personal growth this year is my wish.
- The Power of Your Subconscious Mind – Joseph Murphy (Continuing read)
- Zen and Art of Happiness – Chris Prentiss (Started on 6th january)
- The Code of Extraordinary Mind – Vishen Lakhiani
I also have some books from my friends which is there on my list
- Ardhviram – Priyanka Nair
- You, Me & the Universe – Manas Mukul (* done reading 7th January)
- End of the Rope – Shaurya Arya Kanojia
There are also some books to learn and get better at work and life. these are mostly result oriented and focused on learning something new or getting better at what I am doing now.
- One Hour Content plan – Meera Kothand
- 12-week fitness project – Rujuta Diwekar
Now over time I will add and update the list to make it 12 books and hopefully make sure to finish them all. Are you planning to read any books this year?
How do I stick to reading?
- Reading Clubs and Reading groups are my true motivation. We share daily reads and pic of the pages so that we can keep each other hooked to reading
- Surround yourself with books and people who love books to remind you to keep reading. Place books on side tables
- Buy a few stationery of your choice – highlighters, pen, sticky notes and use them while reading
- Make your own bookmark they are super motivating
- Write your takeaways and book reviews and share on social media
One Last Tip
Do not hurry to finish a book. It kills the whole joy and pleasure of reading from it.
Okay, I have more from my book-loving friends. Pace your reading when reading personal growth. Read light and fiction with other serious kinds of book. Ask your friends to suggest books for you. Share a daily read with your gang of readers.
Happy Reading !
